Building The Essentials in Crosby

Woman Helping Daughter Blow Her Nose

We are open. We are. Unfortunately, this has become a rare commodity with the increasing restrictions being asked of us as the coronavirus crisis in Crosby continues. To help with making this uninterrupted care a possibility in our office, we have implemented a series of procedures to help in maximizing the cleanliness for each of our patient areas. You can do this at home, as well. This week let’s begin with a basic recommended line of defense: wash your hands and the surfaces around you.

The vast majority of experts recommend that a primary line of defense is to wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. We are doing this after every patient encounter. We are also encouraging our patients do this on the way in, though many are already doing this on their own before we see them. During this time of frequent washing, using a soap that is less harsh can help in minimizing the discomfort. Try these favorites:

Ingredients for the hand soap

  • 1/2 cup castile soap liquid
  • 1/2 cup distilled water
  • 15 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 5-10 drops lavender essential oil (If desired)
  • 1 Tbsp vitamin E oil
  • 1 Tbsp sweet almond oil or olive oil or jojoba oil

Ingredients for the surface spray

In an 8 ounces spray bottle combine:

  • 3/4 cup distilled water
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 7-8 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 7-8 drops lavender essential oil

We have had an increasing number of calls to help patients in their care via phone or Zoom from their home. In response, we now have unveiled a platform that allows you to schedule your appointment time. Go to ask and click the Book appointment tab. You’ll see the calendar and available times. Follow the easy instructions and get started.

As a reminder, we also have made available our best nutrients through our online patient hub. Just text your name, email, and cell phone number and we will set you up and give you top recommendation to help you during this time and beyond. They come directly to your home or desired location.
